A Guide to North Canton, Ohio

This piece serves as a guide to my hometown of North Canton, Ohio. The piece is an exploration of small town, midwestern life, and its forgotten or overlooked history. The goal was to portray the sense of small town Ohio life without ever having to travel to Ohio. The piece contains multiple elements, including: a brief history of the town, 8 locations to visit, a map of Ohio, an address book including conversation prompts, old family photographs, postcards, eight cigarettes to be smoked at eight designated locations, headphones, a rosary, a cassette player and a cassette tape featuring recordings of my Grandfathers bluegrass band.
